There are further inconsistencies in this command: the columns in the output
tables of regression commands are separated by tabs after using Copy Table
to copy and paste, but not columns from ANOVA tables which are, like the
output of -table-, filled with spaces after the Copy Table command.

You can also cut and paste using Shift-Ctrl-C (or the "copy table" function
in the edit menu) once you have highlighted the table. This will put
tab-delimited text into a Word document which can then be converted using
relevant command in the "Table" menu of Word (exact command depends on which
version). This works well for getting values across, but I usually need to
"pretty-up" headings etc.

This is true for 2-way tables such as those produced by -tabulate-.  But it
does not work for 3-way tables produced by -table- (that is, tables that
have a "supercolumn" variable defined).  On executing a Copy-Table command
and pasting into Word/Excel, the supercolumns are nicely separated by tabs,
but the columns within the supercolumn are separated by spaces.  So too are
column totals and supercolumn totals should they be specified.  All this
makes a copy into Excel or Word needlessly tedious.
